    The support for NX has been a requirement for Windows since Windows 8. You can check the capabilities of your CPU with Coreinfo from Sysinternals.

    Some systems with an NX-capable CPU have it turned off in the BIOS (though I would have expected Setup to say 'not enabled' rather than 'doesn't support'). Check the manual for your wife's system.

    Bree, can't remember specifics but with some processors if you dropped down to a 32 bit version Windows 10 would work.

    Do you know details?

    Might it work here?

    Not as far as the NX requirement is concerned, it would appear. From Windows 8 on....

    The 32-bit version of Windows uses one of the following features for DEP support:
    • The AMD-defined No-eXecute (NX) page protection processor feature
    • The Intel-defined eXecute Disable (XD) bit feature

    I am out of patience with both computers. NOW 1 out of 3 had no problem (Gamer) and the other 2 never upgraded. The wife's unit needs a new M/B that supports NX, And my Personal unit will not go past 99% after 24 hrs. So at this point I am throwing int he towel and purchasing an Win 10 DVD. I do want to thank all that have contributed.
